Just when you think Jussie Smollett will never be held accountable you hear something like this and your hope is restored.
This is huge.
A Cook County judge has just ordered Google to turn over all of Smollett’s Google data from the past year.
The move came as prosecutors plow forward with the special investigation of his hate crime hoax.
The Chicago Tribune reported that warrants were filed last month in Circuit Court seeking a slew of documentation between Smollett and his manager’s Google accounts.
And it’s not just emails.
It’s also drafted and deleted messages and any files in their Google Drive cloud storage any Google voice texts, calls, and contacts. Not to mention search and web browsing history; and location data.
In the warrants, investigators asked for an entire year of data, starting in November 2018 and ending in November 2019.
The Tribune added, “Authorities could be looking for any incriminating remarks from Smollett or his manager, especially in the months after State’s Attorney Kim Foxx’s office abruptly dismissed disorderly conduct charges against the then-‘Empire’ actor just weeks after his indictment.”
Foxx’s questionable actions caused public outrage which ultimately contributed to Judge Michael Toomin’s decision to appoint a special prosecutor, former U.S. Attorney Dan Webb, to re-prosecute the case.
In a separate report, the Tribune added, “Webb, 73, now the co-chairman of the powerful Winston & Strawn law firm, has investigated the conduct of numerous targets over the years, from corrupt local officials to a former president.” [Daily Wire]
Sound to me like this special investigation is no joke.
Granted, this is what should have been done in the first place by crooked prosecutor Kim Foxx.
The good news is that it’s happening now and there’s very serious hope that this man will be held accountable for his disgusting and hateful actions.
